Update Service

Save yourself time by using our professional update service. Your update to Supreme Host v4.1 will be completed in-house by our team who will ensure everything goes smoothly with no loss of customizations.

In this tutorial you will learn how to update your Supreme Host WHMCS Template to v4.1.

Is This Update Required?

We always recommend keeping your WHMCS Template up to date to ensure you benefit from the latest features. If you purchased Supreme Host after the launch of v4.1 (20th September 2016) you do not need to follow this update as it will already be applied to your template version.

How To Update

You will need to follow every step below to update Supreme Host to v4.1.

1. Complete Earlier Template Updates

Before completing this update it is important to complete any previous updates that may have been missed. Check the launch dates of each update with the date you purchased Supreme Host to see which updates need to be completed.

2. Upload The Files

Want to save time? You can hire us to update your template.

The next step is to upload the files from the update ZIP we have carefully prepared. The files contained within this update are unlikely to have been modified by most users as they are core client area files. If there are changes required to files that are more likely to have been edited (such as header.tpl, template.css, english.php) they will be listed as manual edits in step 4 to ensure that any edits made to these files will not be lost.

Steps To Upload

1. Make a full backup of your WHMCS files & database for safety

2. Download the update files >> Download Supreme Host v4.0 to v4.1 Update (.zip)

3. Extract the ZIP file to your desktop

4. Rename the /upload/templates/your_active_template/ to the name of your active Zomex template you'd updating (e.g stellar, universe, eco-net etc)

5. Upload the contents of the upload directory using an FTP client to:

/whmcs_path/

Ensure that your FTP client does not replace directories and instead adds/overrides the new files within the existing directory. We recommend FileZilla which is free and will work correctly out of the box.

If you have made customisations to any files contained in the ZIP we recommend comparing your version and the updated version so you can re-apply your customisations manually.

3. Apply Manual File Edits

The final step is to make manual edits to some files. These edits are made manually as there is a higher chance that the files may have been customized. Manually applying the Supreme Host v4.1 edits ensures that any prior customisations are safe.

Open all of your supported language files and paste the following to the bottom (above ?>) e.g if you're using the English language: /whmcs_path/modules/addons/zomex_template_manager/english.php:
